Man Lines up with his Therapists Using Walkers and Steals The Show with his Dance Routine
When life takes an unexpected turn for the worse, it’s beneficial to keep a positive perspective about what’s important in life. When you’re handed lemons, it’s not easy to turn them into lemonade, but with some help from music therapy, one man did just that. In his long career, he was a music teacher, a school principal, and the president of his local Lion’s Club. At the age of 55 John Woloski suffered a massive stroke that landed him in a rehabilitation center.
What John does at the rehab hospital not only helps him regain movement and balance, but brings a smile to his face as well. John says he was inspired by a former music student of his, a 14-year-old named Lizzie. Lizzie has cerebral palsy, and would hug John from her wheelchair every class period. He says that compared to her, his problems seemed so small.
Watch him do Lizzie proud with a hospital dance complete with the staff as backup! They come up with a special performance of their own, and it’s nothing short of amazing.
